i bought this a while back on ebay, the seller had no ID for it and i cant find a match anywhere..it looks like a merckx but not quite the same as any i can find

its BSC thread on the bottom bracket 1.37 x 24

brev campagnalo drop outs on front forks with reynolds stamp, though not sure if its original to the frame

the rear drop outs are stamped with Allez

ive built it up and it runs very fast and light but it feels stiff for a steel frame-performance wise its around about a reynolds 653 or a 531cs frameset

i dont have much experience with columbus tubing but im assuming its one of those

the only frame ID number i can see stamped on the bottom bracket is the initials "HB"

any ideas? thanks

Pics are a bit small but looks like it's in Caloi colours and I think they made frames for the Merckx company.
